The Kilgore Superlite TH400
"Everything works quicker.
The ET's are quicker, reaction times are quicker,
60 foots are quicker,
quarter miles are quicker, everything is faster."
- John Kilgore
John Kilgore Transmissions offers a
new three-speed racing automatic that's stronger, lighter and
quicker than a C4 and less power-robbing for quicker ET's. This
light weight transmission is based on the legendary Turbo 400
but has been redesigned with super lightweight internals to reduce
drag and speed-up shifts. The key is in the direct drum that weighs
a full five pounds less than a C4's and 15 less that a C6. Though
dramatically lighter than the C6, Kilgore's transmission offers
as much or more capacity. 5.0 Mustang race application is a snap
with the available small-block Ford bell-housing.
the Superlite is based on a GM TH400 transmission, its very
low parasitic losses make it a natural for the small block
Ford Mustangs. It's a must for Super Stock and Stock drag
race cars to help them accelerate quicker than ever!
In the Superlite transmission the forward & direct
clutch assembles are in one housing, and always rotates with engine
RPM. The complete housing assembly weights just 12 pounds and
with aluminum steels it can weight as little as 9 pounds. That
means it takes far less horsepower to run the transmission, so
more power is available for acceleration. This is not rocket science!
Less energy used by the transmission and more energy is available
to the rear wheels!
Lighter Parts = Quicker
